     CHICAGO (ELCA) -- The Rev. Barbara K. Lundblad, associate
professor of preaching at Union Theological Seminary, New York, returns
as speaker for three installments of "Day 1," formerly known as  "The
Protestant Hour," a nationally broadcast radio program also accessible
via streaming audio on the Web.
     Lundblad, a pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
(ELCA), can be heard on the Jan. 12, Feb. 16 and March 23 broadcasts of
"Day 1" on more than 150 participating radio stations and at http:// on the Web.  Each program includes a five-minute interview
with her.
     Lundblad's first sermon in the series deals with the baptism of
Jesus.	"From the day he saw the heavens torn apart, Jesus began tearing
apart the pictures of who Messiah was supposed to be  . . .  tearing
apart the social fabric that separated rich from poor, breaking through
hardness of heart to bring forth compassion, breaking through rituals
that had grown rigid or routine, tearing apart the chains that bound
some of the demons' power, tearing apart the chains that bound some in
the demons' power, tearing apart the notions of what it means to be
God's beloved Son," she said.
     Lundblad spent 16 years as a parish pastor in New York City and
served as campus pastor at Lehman College, Bronx, N.Y., and New York
University, New York.  She taught preaching at Yale Divinity School, New
Haven, Conn.; Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, N.J.; Hebrew
Union College, New York; and in the Doctor of Ministries Program of the
Association of Chicago Theological Schools, Chicago. Lundblad has a
degree in English from Augustana College, an ELCA higher education
institution in Rock Island, Ill., and a master of divinity degree from
Yale Divinity School.
     She has authored several books, including "Transforming the Stone:
Preaching through Resistance to Change," and most recently, "Marking
Time: Preaching at the Rivers Edge."
     "Day 1" has been broadcast as "The Protestant Hour" every week
since 1945, winning numerous awards in the process, including the George
Foster Peabody Award for broadcast excellence.	It is produced
cooperatively by the ELCA, the Episcopal Media Center, the United
Methodist Church, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), and the United
Church of Christ. A version is also broadcast Sunday mornings on the
Hallmark Channel's "America at Worship" series.
